DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the sweet potatoes. Pierce the peel in 6-8 places, place both in microwave and nuke for 4-6 minutes, until partially cooked.
  • While sweet potatoes are cooking, peel plantains and slice into medium rounds.
  • Slice sweet potatoes into chunks. My preferred method it to quarter them and then chunk the quarters like a banana. Nice triangular pieces are good for presentation.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet or nonstick frying pan.
  • On medium to medium-high heat, fry sweet potato and plantain slices together, stirring and flipping to prevent sticking or burning.
  • Grate sea salt over slices during frying process.
  • Drain and shake onto serving plate. Best hot! Reheat well in oven or toaster oven after refrigeration, poorly in microwave.
